    In which Pippa goes through an awkward phase

    Awkward Patton is my favorite Patton!! But on the flip side it's so exciting to think about what he will look like all grown up! She is feeling so much better! I am so lucky she pulled through for me :) Hahahaha the struggle is real. She had ears for days, even when the rest of her was...

    In which Pippa goes through an awkward phase

    Dad's been calling her "stilts" and I'm thinking we won't buy copies of her school picture this year :p We still get all the best radio stations thanks to her built-in satellite dishes.

    Pippa's my only dog but sometimes she gets edged out as the favorite by the stuffed dog on my bookshelf :p

    New Puppy!

    I would make a vet appointment ASAP! It's always good to get a new pup checked out anyway, and it sounds like you have some valid worries.

    Best position for trimming nails?

    So I totally cheat with Pippa and stick a plate full of peanut butter on the floor so she is occupied while I'm working. I like to just dremel with her feet on the ground, and since we do it every couple of days I don't really have to worry about quicking her: I just take a tiny bit off during...

    How does Your Dog do Around Fireworks?

    Pippa couldn't care less about fireworks from our experiences so far (unless they are accompanied by drunken revelers). After being abroad, though, I may need a Thundershirt!

    How important is tone of voice?

    Holy crap yes. Any hint of panic or concern or seriousness in my voice and she is immediately looking for whatever I'm calling her off of. Pippa is very sensitive to tone of voice, and I've had to make adjustments so that I don't inadvertently up her arousal when she is getting wound up. Calm...

    Pip gets an oral tick preventative that has been working really well for her. We had always used the topical but it gets her all itchy and bothered.

    I am a big backpacker! Usually I hike for work, but I love taking Pippa on day hikes (we haven't taken an overnight trip together yet...I don't know if I could get her to sleep without her crate and I don't really want to pack it in haha). Gear-wise, I love my pack (no idea what brand it...

    Blockages, Mesenteric Torsion, Insurance, and Pippa

    It's been a while since I've posted here, but I try to keep up with everyone on Facebook as much as I can. That said, I thought I would post a little bit on here about Pippa's recent ordeal. I left Pippa with a "friend" and professional dog trainer (N) about a month ago while I was traveling...
